Here's where I'll be posting all my art to share with the forum. I do art of pinup girls featuring the fattest oppai and thickest thighs. Often times that leads to big booty and yummy tummy.
I draw my own mascot, an OC named Yolanda. She's got large...assets...let's put it at that. But other than her, I'll draw fanart or whatever comes to mind.
If you're interested in seeing more, you can support me by following me on Pixiv and my various social media profiles (in my signature!).
This first post will put all my older drawings prior to this thread's birth date, and then the newest posts I make will be in this thread.
I won't flood this thread with any variations of a piece I make, however, since I want traffic on the Pixiv profile. I'll link every new drawing with the Pixiv post. Please, look at it there!

Feel free to leave some critique, as well! For an artist, it is necessary for growth. But if you don't have any, feel free to ask anything regarding me or my art, especially if you are curious about what I will/plan to draw.

[FE3H] Lady Rhea - Extra Support

Full res & variants: https://www.pixiv.net/en/artworks/89199535

Lady Rhea from Fire Emblem 3 Houses levels up her support rank with the professor... ;)
Features two settings: Archbishop's room during the day and during the night.

I had been entertaining this idea for fanart of Lady Rhea for a while, and in some ways the speech bubbles are kinda cringe but also funny. One of my friends really doesn't like Lady Rhea, so this one is to show my devotion. She is very motherly, so I instantly liked her (and she's not a bad character, either).

This one was incredibly fun to draw, and the simplicity of her hair definitely made things easier. Yolanda on the other hand has a lot of parts to her hair. Lady Rhea reminds me of Palutena, but it's probably just due to the same hair color and skin tone. Of course, I love the female form, so it was also lots of fun making Rhea THICCER. I had a lot of fun with this one, especially when I was adding in some storytelling.

As a fellow cultist of the thicc, I commend your endeavours. :salute:

In many cases, I would have to say your figures are a bit too much for me, but I appreciate your dedication and contributions to the field all the same. Of what you've posted, I would say my favorites are the grey lingerie girl and the prototype Yolanda as a succubus. Delectable and meaty, just how I like it.

Speaking of which, what lead to the creation of your OC, Yolanda? Naturally she may serve as a manifestation of your preferred proportions, but did anything special come to your mind with her design? The curls in particular are quite cute and something I don't see very often. This may be a largely insignificant element, but I do quite like the shading of your purple color scheme.

As for another question, do you have any artists that stick out as inspirations to your work?

lol, yeah, I've been gradually figuring out the maximum extent of proportions before things get "too big" for me (some may argue it's already broken a threshhold). If you notice in the Prototype Yolanda - Succubus drawing, that was pushing boundaries for a bit, until I ended up where I am now. I guess the fetish evolved, but I dislike actual hyper proportions. I think with the Lady Rhea piece, that's probably where I've gone past a personally acceptable boundary. I actually shrunk her pelvic region in the drawing process, and even then, I think it's a bit too much. The boobs are where I like them though ;). Pear shape > hourglass for me, but that's probably because I like the breasts large so hourglass ends up looking too top heavy.

As for my OC, I came up with Yolanda when I was just learning how to draw. Referring to her as an OC is funny because it reminds me of the DeviantArt days, especially that meme of "my OC do not steal." At the time, I was also taking into consideration some character design principles, and I wanted to make her stand out somehow. The curls, the long back braid tied together with a large pearl, and her head bun kinda just stuck and became signature, and actually helped me develop my sense of rotation in space. Just as you noted, I was adamant on retaining the hair curls because it isn't very common. After enough of drawing the same girl over and over for practice, I decided to just give her a name and brand her as my mascot. When I was naming her, I was just pulling from familiar names that I've heard of/seen, and then did a lot of searching to see if the name had overlap with other characters, especially if it was a video game or anime/manga/cartoon/comic character. Yolanda was the name with the least hits that I cared about, so I settled on it. Perhaps I should give her a last name and some lore if I find a good reason to. Finally, the purple/pink hair became the color I settled on for her hair because I thought it conveyed a sense of lust and attraction (perfect for a busty mascot made to be looked at), but I also want her to be a very gentle looking girl so that she also gives an impression of being gentle and soft. I don't know if I was successful on that front, but nothing prohibits me from iterating on her current design.

As for inspirational artists, I'll list the few with profiles on Pixiv that I regularly come back to to study (some are hentai artists, but it shouldn't be surprising, because look at what I produce lol). These are the only ones I'll hyperlink because I have their Pixiv profiles on hand (obviously not exhaustive, but should give you a good idea).

  • haganef (NSFW + R18) - Attractive, busty girls with pretty lighting. Sometimes mecha.
  • Piukute062 (NSFW + Few R18) - Beautiful expressions, poses, and sometimes environment.
  • JunkPuyo (NSFW) - Has an OC named Beryl that's also busty, and I studied their art for expressions, setting, anatomy, and lighting.
  • Sakimichan (NSFW + R18) - Well known semi-realistic artist that draws a lot of fanart. She's definitely more your style in terms of proportions. Amazing and almost genius level of knowledge of lighting and texture, so I revisit her regularly to study.
  • cromwellb (NSFW) - Overall bright lighting, attractive poses, and great expressions. Not as detailed as 千里GAN, but
  • Zen (NSFW + R18) - Primarily draws Saber from Fate, but proportions similar to mine. Great lighting and expressions.
  • 千里GAN (NSFW) - Insane talent regarding expressions, poses, and emotional conveyance. Beautiful lighting as well.
  • MeIoN (NSFW + Some R18) - Not as large girls as I draw, emphasizing hourglass. Beautiful drawings with really clean presentation and backgrounds.
  • ♣3 (Clover 3) (R18) - Expressions and poses.
  • Lexaideur (NSFW + R18) - Semi-realistic artist. Goes into larger proportions than Sakimi, so I tend to like his or her's art more, and has as much knowledge of lighting.
  • たにし (Tanishi) (NSFW + R18) - A hentai artist, but draws some beautiful milfs with very soft, motherly expressions. Great to look at for poses.
  • Cian yo (NSFW + R18) - Gorgeous expressions. I want to emulate the kind of softness this artist's faces have, so I often study this one.

And of course, everyone's dabbled in their fair share of porn/hentai. Many artists start off doing porn, but I haven't gone to that extent. This list of artists I pulled off of nhentai where I just reverse searched the works I remember reading and really liking (also obviously not exhaustive). It's funny; ever since I started drawing, less time is spent tubing and more time is spent studying, even though the source material is jack-off material.

  • Mikan - Huuuuuuge titty artist. Does the art for some hentai game called Hentai Inma Advent Devil - Carnival. Great expressions, lighting, and designs on the girls, but not for studying anatomy (tits will hide torso lol). Admittedly, this doujin is one artist I actually did download archives of their work.
  • Tawara Hiryuu - Milfs with fat tits. The girls are also incredibly thicc, and this doujin adds on some fat, too. Great expressions, especially the ahegao and "O" faces.
  • kawaisaw - Milfs with fat tits. Gives the girls expressions that are kind of intense, but still motherly/womanly.
  • Etuzan Jakusei - Milfs with fat tits. Understands the weight and droop of breasts and how to make them not look like balloons.
  • kurunomiki - I love this doujin's one doujinshi of Magisa from GBF. Large breasts, some fat, and knows how to make the girls look supple in a still illustration.
  • shindou - Found this one from a doujinshi regarding an oni wife. I love the expressions of this doujin's girls; they are soft and motherly.
  • kaenuco - Milfs with fat tits. Great expressions and oppai.

There are also some SFW artists I like. Off the top of my head, Hidari and Kozaki Yusuke are two great examples, both of whom did official art for Fire Emblem games. Hidari did FE Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, and Kozaki Yusuke did FE Fates/if and FE Heroes.

Thank you for asking! I feel like I've come a very long way in the past year when I first started posting art (I did dabble prior to 2020, though) and really investing in the skill, and I'm very happy that a new community sprung up that I can share my art with. Obviously I still have a long way to go...most of the artists I look up to have a dozen+ years of experience and learning under their belt, and I'm a year old fledgling.

I am very much appreciative with those list of names you've shared. Funnily enough, I was already following eight of the artists, and a couple of the others I already know of but did not have them on Pixiv. Very much not a fan of how, even for western artists, exposing material has to be censored in some form, so I tend to stick to Pixiv just for safe content up until ecchi.

Speaking of which, is there anything in particular that has prevented you from going all the way as it pertains to porn? There's certainly nothing wrong with sticking to the sort of pin-up style you're going for at the moment, but I do anticipate things would go nicely here if you were to cross that boundary. I've also noticed that, at least based on what you've posted, there's no exposed nipples or genitals yet. Has this proven to be a roadblock in your case, or is it simply a matter of you being comfortable with what you're doing presently?

Pear shape > hourglass for me, but that's probably because I like the breasts large so hourglass ends up looking too top heavy.
I'm a bit curious and also confused by your words here; would you not say your drawings are well within the hourglass category? I have always understood pear-shaped to mean that weight and curves are concentrated in the lower half, often establishing the bust to be on the smaller side. Your figures are most certainly not lacking in either hemisphere.

Perhaps I should give her a last name and some lore if I find a good reason to.
You've clearly put a lot of time, effort, and imagination into designing her, so I would certainly endorse the idea of fleshing her out even further. She serves perfectly well in the mascot role for which you intended her, but why not have even more fun with it and go beyond? This may just be the writer inside of me trying to give a fellow creative a nudge, but I think it would be great for you. It could also lead to inspiration for what else you could do going forward, either with Yolanda as a character or perhaps a world of characters of your own design. Fanart is great and all, but I'm sure you would agree that's it's even bring your own creations into life.

It's funny; ever since I started drawing, less time is spent tubing and more time is spent studying, even though the source material is jack-off material.
Well, as the tired black man once said:


Regardless of it being spank material at its core, all hentai and ecchi are art in some form, which means it can be praised for its value and/or critiqued for its flaws. There's no irony in the fact that you are taking the time to study the work, even if it's a bit saucy. I know you're not asserting this, but there are many people other there, prudefaggots especially, who simply debase erotic material to having only surface-level value. This sort of reductive thinking could be applied to so many things in life, but of course that's not convenient for certain narratives bad actors like to proliferate.

I feel like I've come a very long way in the past year when I first started posting art (I did dabble prior to 2020, though) and really investing in the skill, and I'm very happy that a new community sprung up that I can share my art with. Obviously I still have a long way to go...most of the artists I look up to have a dozen+ years of experience and learning under their belt, and I'm a year old fledgling.
Considering you've only been seriously going at this for just a year, I would say you are making good progress. I am aware of many other artists who are much further along in their timeline who have yet to really improve much or solidify a style.

It never ceases to amaze me how artists can keep improving year after year. Sakimichan for example is someone I've followed almost since their inception, and even though I am still a fan of many of their older works (especially from 2015 and 2016) I am so much more pleased with what they are doing now. The same is certainly going to be true for you as you keep perfecting your craft and keeping at it. Really, the sort of grind artists put themselves to when they are truly dedicated is something I greatly respect and hope to emulate myself one day.

Anyway, sorry for carrying on a bit in what was supposed to be a thread for you to share your work. It's not every day I get to start a dialogue with a budding artist, so I take the opportunities I can to not only learn from them but also provide whatever support and motivation I can. At the very least, thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts!

tbh I don't mind, I can edit early posts, or I can have them reorganized (if the forum software supports it and Halo is willing). I'm also very happy to be able to share my thoughts; it's very relieving being able to express myself. Perhaps I could start a blog, but I'm stuck with not having a lot of things figured out especially regarding marketing and visibility. I'll share some things regarding the previous points now. EDIT: This convo is also chronicled for other people to read and participate in. This may be an art thread, but I guess I can treat it as a personal corner of the forum for myself.

(Regarding the pear>hourglass statement) I'm a bit curious and also confused by your words here; would you not say your drawings are well within the hourglass category? I have always understood pear-shaped to mean that weight and curves are concentrated in the lower half, often establishing the bust to be on the smaller side. Your figures are most certainly not lacking in either hemisphere.
I should clarify: you mentioned that my figures were too much for you, and I didn't really hit the mark describing the body types I like. Essentially what I was going for was: since I really like (extra) big booba, that often means the proportions excluding the breasts alter to make sure the girl isn't too top heavy, but also to ensure that the transition from waist to hips aren't drastic like a bimbo. So I tend to claim that pear > hourglass for me to prevent that twig abdomen situation and equalize the large breasts (I believe that's true for my art, but there may be a dissonance between my own perceived reality and what others see). It may be inaccurate, so I think I'll be changing the terminology I use...

Speaking of which, is there anything in particular that has prevented you from going all the way as it pertains to porn? There's certainly nothing wrong with sticking to the sort of pin-up style you're going for at the moment, but I do anticipate things would go nicely here if you were to cross that boundary.

Has this proven to be a roadblock in your case, or is it simply a matter of you being comfortable with what you're doing presently?
I am absolutely interested in doing lewds, but right now I want to try and nail making technically good illustrations without relying on it being R18 material for appeal (potentially to my detriment). I might be focusing on technicality too much, but I choose to because I feel like I have many fundamentals I need to improve upon. Something I want to be able to do is to create "beautiful" drawings that feature a sexy girl, not just provocative art (if that makes any sense), as simply one of many talents. Trust me, I'm anxious to deliver some top quality lewds, especially considering the kind of girls I draw. There is nothing holding me back regarding morals or beliefs; just whether or not I think I can pull it off very well. I especially am trying to work on facial expressions and different view angles (everything is level and either 3/4 or front profile at the moment), which are extremely important for that kind of artwork. I don't plan to hold it off for very long; just trying to establish myself first with skills and build up my audience first. Though, you and I both know that full-on spank material is quite lucrative, so I shouldn't tarry for too long.

You've clearly put a lot of time, effort, and imagination into designing her, so I would certainly endorse the idea of fleshing her out even further. She serves perfectly well in the mascot role for which you intended her, but why not have even more fun with it and go beyond? This may just be the writer inside of me trying to give a fellow creative a nudge, but I think it would be great for you. It could also lead to inspiration for what else you could do going forward, either with Yolanda as a character or perhaps a world of characters of your own design. Fanart is great and all, but I'm sure you would agree that's it's even bring your own creations into life.
I do have a "canon" for her, but I'm not sure how I would publicize it or make it official due to the circumstances regarding plans I have. As such, for now, she's just a named mascot until I can incorporate her into a later project. However, not as a primary character, but as a side or cameo character, because she would not be a compelling subject for a narrative due to the amount of idealization I've granted her. The primary focus of said project would focus on another character with actual flaws (which obviously makes for a more interesting and or relatable narrative), and not an idealized personification of femininity. Forgive me, but I don't really have plans to reveal her story/lore any time soon, since it kinda ties into the project I have planned (loosely, but fits into the lore, so it would be weird to lore drop Yolanda's out of context). Though, I may drop some things here and there that would hint at and lead up to that future project. Definitely remember that she is "idealized."

Big tiddies and fat thighs:puddicat-heart::puddicat-heart:. Wonderful drawings Cayhr tho just like you said I'm not the fan of "too big proportions" (too much fat or just weird anatomy etc.)
Btw, since you mentioned Sakimichan don't you have by any chance her tutorials that she used to post at some point?

Hehe, thanks. I love the female form, but I definitely take things further. So in the department of thicc I guess I fall into a fringe section that's more exaggerated, but not in the hyper category (that's just ridiculous).

As for Sakimi's art tutorials: I remember I used to learn by slowing down speed paint videos other artists post, and I'm sure I could find Sakimi's somewhere. Though I think she paywalls them on Patreon.

Sorry but I will not directly quote since there is a lot of content already and I'm a bit lazy at the moment.

I love your style! I know it's been mentioned but I agree that the figures are a bit "too big" for me too. Though to me some do not cross the threshold, but regardless that doesn't get in the way of appreciating your art overall. You just got a follower in Pixiv. :puddicat-heart:

That Prototype Yolanda - Succubus... :hyper-ro:

I noticed what you mentioned (if I understood correctly) that you made them a bit thicker so that you compensate the huge boobas. :cultured:

I also don't want to diverge the thread too much from its original intention, but I will a bit so forgive me. :megu-scare: I see you mentioned you would learn by slowing down paint videos. Are there other methods/materials/sources you have used to learn/improve?. I am slowing going through a course to learn character proportions so I can improve my skills. I would say I am ok at copying another drawing or a figure (I have tried with Megumin, 2B and Tokisaki Kurumi ones), but of course drawing from imagination is in a league of its own.

Thanks for your encouragement and support! It may not be much, but I'm happy when someone positively commented on the "style." I just hope it's unique (enough). Also, it seems like everyone really likes the Prototype Yolanda - Succubus and the Portrait Practice pieces. I'll have to go back to those proportions at some point, since at the moment I draw for myself and really indulge in the thiccness. Those two drawings are probably more in line with what most people like, but I definitely want to be known for ultra thiccness.

As for methods I've used to learn, it's definitely nothing methodical or systematic, but it still takes a lot of focus and analysis. I am completely self-taught, so no professional instruction on how things work or any tips to use. As such, I learn on the fly. Every time I do a piece, I try to do something I'm not familiar with. It's part of why, if you look at the dates of my drawings on Pixiv, they can be 2-3 weeks apart. I'm learning a crap ton of things in between postings (gradually becoming shorter), and I have to focus-learn for every component of a piece I need. And when I say focus-learn, I mean it. If I got to a point where I didn't know how to draw or shade something, I'd dedicate time to learn how to draw or shade that one thing before coming back to my piece. Being an artist means you are accumulating a massive mental library for you to pull reference from when you draw. So for me, I'm familiar with how breasts sag and deform (from a variety of sources) at different sizes and angles because I drew and looked at a lot of them in those different situations. Learning from reality is also important, so I often pulled real pictures of girls (plain image search) and studied them, and then wireframe sketched out the body.

In general though, I watched a lot of YouTubers like MikeyMegaMega and RossDraws, to name a few, and I looked at a lot of other artists' work too. As mentioned before, if there was a speedpaint video I liked the final product of, I just slowed it down and tried to comprehend what was going on. If there was something I was trying to draw but I didn't know how to, I would look at some other artists' piece I liked, and tried to draw specifics parts of it in an attempt to copy and learn. Then I take what I learn and try to apply it to my own piece, which will be different. It's part of how I learned anatomy (aside from properly learning it via muscle diagrams and stuff) by just tracing over pinup of artists like Sakimi and ReiQ and pages out of hentai (I did this a lot, admittedly, lol) and then trying to understand why the bodies looked good subjectively (I like the pose/size, composition is good, etc.) and objectively (muscles are correct, bone structure looks believable, light indicates depth, etc.). I also remember watching a lot of the Wacom speedpaint videos, which were meant to advertise the product, but watching the artist from blank canvas to finish did let me pick up a few tricks other artists used. And then of course, compiling artists I liked the works of. Sometimes it wouldn't even be applicable to what I was trying to draw in the case of said artists' work having elements I was looking for (e.g.: mecha art or Saber fanart to learn how to shade metal, environmental art for environments, or lewd pics to learn how to shade particular muscles on the female body).

Ultimately, you're building a foundation of knowledge and then mixing and matching resources from your mental library to create your own things. But building that foundation takes a lot of time and effort.

I recently hit 300 followers on Pixiv, and I decided to dedicate this next piece of Yolanda to celebrating it. It's a small number to many, but to me, it marks a growth milestone. I hope I continue to garner lots of support in the future, since clearly I'm doing something right. :ohohoh:

I really cannot get enough of this girl, she is so fun to draw (but maybe that's just because I love big boobs).

Not sure if you guys do, since it's likely that we're all exclusively looking at eastern entertainment, but I keep up with the comicsgaters here in the west competing with the (dying) mainstream. One of them, RagingGoldenEagle, successfully crowd funded an indie comic (something like 400k USD) called Blade Devil and is preparing to print and ship the comic soon. It's a massive W for entertainment, and even though we very much like manga and anime, it's a good thing that people are fighting against the politically correct trend we all know and love. MHA was inspired by classic Marvel comics, and now the new creators of the west are inspired by manga and top sellers of the east.

Watching the indie scene succeed also inspired and motivated me to be where I am today, so I felt obligated to draw fanart of the main character Ashyara. Now I need to go and spend time studying stuff very intently. Enjoy!

If you're interested, Blade Devil is on IndieGogo here.

Watching the indie scene succeed also inspired and motivated me to be where I am today, so I felt obligated to draw fanart of the main character Ashyara. Now I need to go and spend time studying stuff very intently. Enjoy!

If you're interested, Blade Devil is on IndieGogo here.
Nice! :gurayaya:
Ashyara is pretty stacked already and she received an upgrade through you. :illya-smug:

I haven't been keeping up with western comics much anymore. Blade Devil was the only one I found interesting enough to be worth backing (already excluding the obvious dumpster fire that we can see in Kickstarter for example).

Not sure if you guys do, since it's likely that we're all exclusively looking at eastern entertainment, but I keep up with the comicsgaters here in the west competing with the (dying) mainstream. One of them, RagingGoldenEagle, successfully crowd funded an indie comic (something like 400k USD) called Blade Devil and is preparing to print and ship the comic soon. It's a massive W for entertainment, and even though we very much like manga and anime, it's a good thing that people are fighting against the politically correct trend we all know and love.

Holy moly, now Ashyara is extra stacked, but I don't mind really since she looks amazing:hyper-ro-img::hyper-ro-img::hyper-ro-img:.
And yeah I also support the comicsgate comics, but also the other niche comics that are not part of the PC mainstream dying zeitgeist, tho only when my money allows to (there are so many promising comics but not enough cash to back them all, so I have to be picky, it's the comic fan's dilemma:seething:).
Btw, are you going to read Blade Devil once it is released?

I have yet to back it, but I'll defiintely get a copy out of principle. In the mean time, I'll support the new industry through free advertising.

Trying to deviate from the usual front and side views, as well as do full body. I'm still a very slow artist; I make a lot of mistakes and spend time fixing things. Over time, that aspect will improve. I wanted to try and incorporate some cuteness into the character, so I gave her a bow and easened up her expression. The feet were the hardest to do since I don't really draw feet, but I think they turned out alright. Lots of this piece was trying new things for me, so I hope you enjoy this piece of the lovely Yolanda! When she is resting, there's more she rests than just herself...

I'm still not entirely sure what it is, but something about this piece feels more lively than the other ones that I've done. Perhaps its the colors or maybe it's the setting, but I am loving this new direction I'm taking my art. It feels more alive, whereas the other art pieces I've done had a small element of feeling flat and lifeless, even if there was some kind of dynamism going on.

Also I think the boobs might be a bit bigger this time around? :zt-think: Could just be me.

Very nice, man! Always glad to see more of your stuff! :puddicat-heart:

If her boobs keep getting bigger she won't fit in future drawings. :laugh:

Maybe the art feels more alive because of overall brighter colors? :zt-think:
